I have recently deployed 400 XP Pro Laptops over a WiFi network run under a Win2K3 domain. I have set up the group polices OK, but all the laptops had prior existing local accounts on them as they had previously been deployed without any controls. I want to achieve the following:

1. Over-ride local users so they are subject to group policies even when not connected to the domain (ie log on with cached domain settings)
2. Transfer existing MyDocs etc for local users into new MyDocs that relate to new user account on domain

without having to do this manually on each laptop.

Any suggestions would be very welome.

1. If you use cached logins it should still use the domain policy when log in to the domain account when not on the network. Read this post about how to harden the security of this.: http://securityfocus.com/archive/88/388879...22/2005-01-28/2

2. Your best bet is to extend the login script to move the files to the new my documents for the domain profile.
